Color Dare #18

I had the hardest time coming up with an idea for this week's Color Dare card--the colors are So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Lavendar Lace and REAL RED! I mulled it over for over two weeks, then finally decided to try watercoloring this sailboat from OCL's new set, Coastal Wishes, available at i {heart} papers.

When I was finished with the image, it reminded me of something a young man would dream of as he looked forward to retiring, so I decided to make it look like a framed painting on an office wall. I'm not sure I really pulled that off, but it is what it is!

Visit the Color Dare blog to see what the rest of our team created with this challenging color combo!

Be sure to check out Sweet 'n Sassy's blog hop starts today and continues through Friday. The schedule is posted at the top on the right sidebar.
